By Christian Eedes, 7 October 2019
Winemag.co.za is pleased to announce the seventh annual Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend/Wooded Sauvignon Blanc Report.
There are two categories of entry: A) wines specifically labelled as blends and B) wines labelled as single-variety Sauvignon Blanc, barrels used at some point during vinification and permitted to contain up to 15% Semillon in line with official legislation.
Wines will be tasted blind by a three-person panel consisting of Christian Eedes as chairman as well as Roland Peens and James Pietersen, both of Wine Cellar, Cape Town merchants and cellarers of fine wine.
Entries close on 23 October. Results will be made public on Tuesday 12 November.

The producer of the wine judged best overall will win a new 225-litre Sylvain Blanc barrel worth €853 (the equivalent of R13 930 at the current exchange rate) from Tonnellerie Sylvain.
